Maori Music
Hi everyone!  Listen to a piece of Maori music, and read the story of why it is here.....
 
I love Maori music, always have, right from when I was a little girl.  I'm a Pakeha ( a "white" New Zealander), but I went to school in a neighborhood that was almost all Maori, and Maori culture was very much a part of my school.  I learned the pois, still remember all the songs, and I can probably still do the stick games!

I sing with an informal choir here in Ngunguru, and one of our favorite songs to sing is called E Hara. E Hara is a song about a spiritual belief that everything is handed down to us, from our ancestors, through the passage of time. Including love, land, faith and hope.

The choir has graciously allowed me to record us all singing E Hara for you, so that  I may show people all around the world, in my own small way, just how beautiful Maori songs are. 
Click here to listen to eHara .(wav  file).
For a CD or cassette of Maori music, click here to view our Music range.
 
Here are the lyrics to the entire song ( we sing the first verse only), and their meaning:
 
E hara i te mea It is not a new thing
No naianei te aroha now that is love
No nga tupuna Comes from the ancestors
Tuku iho tuku iho Handed down through the passages of time
 
Te whenua te whenua The land, the land
Te oranga mo te iwi is the life for the people
No nga tupuna Comes from the ancestors
Tuku iho tuku iho Handed down through the passages of time
Whakapono tumanako Faith and hope
Te aroha ki te iwi Love to the people
No nga tupuna Comes from the ancestors
Tuku iho tuku iho Handed down through the passages of time
For absolutely beautiful Maori waiata (song), check out this video of the Hatea Kapa Haka Group, performing at Whangarei's Mayoral Concert in May 2011:
